Four or more people are killed = the American definition of a mass killing.
Yesterday, on day 336 of the year 2015, we experienced our 355th mass killing of the year. The 6th of this week!

This is f-ing nuts!!!

It is disturbing how often we get the news about murder that it takes the killing of 14 people to make it into the news. Most people were not aware how high that number was because most incidents are not reported.

Well, until you start controlling guns that is to be expected...

You'd think that would be a reasonable starting place, but it seems gun owners are not all reasonable people.

It is absolutely mind-boggling that Farouk and his wife could have accumulated over 4,500 rounds of ammunition and bought high-powered automatic rifles and handguns legally without raising the slightest bit of concern.

You're right, Alex, if we got a daily national death-by-gun report, it might wake up everybody. Yesterday, I heard that the average of deaths-by-gun over a year's time equals 1 fatal shooting every 6 minutes.

BTW, nice to see you :)

It has, unfortunately, become mind numbing, to the point where it is seeming to be the new norm.

Yay, welcome back, Alex!
